IADC Drilling Engineers Committee Forum to be held 11 June

Posted on 02 June 2014

IADC has established the Drilling Engineers Committee (DEC) to advance new technologies related to drilling wells. DEC replaces the now-dissolved Drilling Engineering Association, and it will hold a forum on 11 June in Houston. Two presentations on the agenda, by Gasfrac and MBJ Water Corp, will focus on hydraulic fracturing. A third presentation, by Newpark Drilling Fluids, will provide an overview of waste management and minimization practices as related to various drilling fluid types.

Registration, which is required to attend the 11 June forum, can be completed online here.

The functions of the DEC include:

  • Presenting proposals for industry drilling-related projects sponsored by members of the committee for the benefit of both members and non-members;
  • Exploring the different levels of interest from members in potential drilling-related problems to aid in developing future industry sponsored projects; and
  • Acting as a liaison for DEC members with universities and other research groups.
